New Holiday Release at Simon Says Stamp - Making Spirits Bright!!

I'm pleased to share some cards that I made using the die that I received for this new Making Spirits Bright holiday release - it's called Pine Needle Wreath!  I have 2 cards - one in traditional Christmas colors, and the 2nd in a more modern lime and pink.

SSS Pine Needle Wreath red

supplies: white, green, and Simon's Schoolhouse Red card stock, Pine Needle Wreath, Hero Arts Joy die, red pearls

I used Jennifer McGuire's layered die technique for this one, cutting the die 4 times from green card stock and layering it, using the negative of the die-cut to position the pine branches.

The next one is a more traditional use of the die, just cutting it from white cardstock, and aligning it over a lime one to let the branches show through.

SSS Pine Needle Wreath Pink

supplies: pink, white, and Simon's Green Apple card stock, My Favorite Things Merry & Bright Plaid design paper, Simon's Pine Needle Wreath and Merry & Bright clear stamp sentiment, Altenew Puffy Heart ink, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop  Border die, bow die from MFT (retired) Spring Wreath, pink pearls

Be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp store to see the rest of this newest release for the Holidays!

SSS Exclusive Making Spirits Bright


  1. I like the idea of the second card!! No wasting card or paper!

  2. Both of your cards are so beautiful; however, if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the second one because I love the non-traditional colors.

  3. What beautiful cards Lin - you have made great use of the die

  4. Your cards are fabulous, wish I brought this now.

  5. omigosh, this Christmas wreath is stunning; thanx for the inspiration!


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
